Nestled among vast forests and fells, Luosto represents a small idyllic resort village set on the edge of Pyha-Luosto National Park.
On the 29th (Sat), go deep underground at Amethyst Mine Lapland. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 30th (Sun): explore the striking landscape of Pyha-Luosto National Park.

Plan my day in Luosto using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Moscow, Russia to Luosto is an approximately 9.5- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Moscow Standard Time (MSK) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is minus 1 hour. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Moscow in December: high temperatures in Luosto hover around -8°C and lows are around -17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) so you can go by car to Inari.
